What I learned today

I learned two things today:

1) While most people with gluten issues can eat corn there are a few gluten sensitive people who can not tolerate corn gluten.  I am now in that category.  I should not have been eating the tortilla chips that we keep in the house for my husband but I didn't have any of "my food" in the house and I was gave into temptation.   For the last 2-3 weeks I have been doing this on a somewhat regular basis and now I am sick as a dog. It took me a little while to put it all together.  I never knew that corn gluten can cause a bad reaction.  After some research I finally figured it out.  This might explain the health problems I have been having lately and the stall on my weight loss.

2)I did too much Tae Bo yesterday and threw my back out. As odd as this sounds, Tae Bo hurt by back but when I do as much kata (let's say an hours worth or so) I never have this issue.  So, I guess I will just have to stick with kata.  Sensei always said kata was more than enough to get into shape.  So, that is what I will do.

Overall this has been a crap day.  Hope your day was much better!!!!


  1. Ouch on the back! I threw mine out in early December and was miserable for weeks. Ugh.

    Sorry to hear about the corn gluten being an issue too. No fun.

    I'm still recovering from the "ick" from last week, but my food has been well on target so I'll have to see what tomorrow's weigh in brings. I have hopes for something good, as the scale hasn't been cooperative for a few weeks (one quarter pound lost in four weeks? really? Ouch), so we'll see what shows up!

  2. Amanda-let me know how the weigh in goes!!! Good luck!!
